WHEREAS Resolution 1989/06 urges the Government of Ontario to provide a qualifying period of fifty-two (52) weeks of employment and ten (10) weeks of parental leave time; and

WHEREAS the granting of parental leave to employees is a very costly process;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Business and Professional Women's Clubs of Ontario remove Resolution 1989/06 from the Resolution Handbook and include the granting of 13 weeks
qualifying period and 18 weeks leave time in our list of accomplishments.
